“Campaign finance fraud accusations haunt Spano, congressional office”


U.S. Rep.-elect Ross Spano is struggling to hire office staff as he relies on a controversial adviser: one of the friends at the center of a campaign finance scandal that is rocking the Florida Republican.

Spano, an attorney and outgoing state legislator with past financial troubles, recently admitted in a letter to the Federal Election Commission that he might have committed a campaign finance “violation” in failing for two months to disclose $180,000 he accepted from two friends. Spano, who personally loaned his campaign $174,500, says the funds he received were loans.
